Melford House
Ranked #2 of 9 Farnborough B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 June 2013

We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights last minute & loved this quaint B&B. We were at the top of the house and the rooms were spacious with ample wardrobe/drawer space. The bathrooms were clean & roomy. There was a selection of books in the room for your perusal and a flat screen television and free wifi.
Will was a charming host & extremely helpful, his breakfasts were tasty, especially the scrambled eggs with chives & nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast variety was excellent and the dining area was light & welcoming.
There was even a fridge of beer/wine & honesty box if you fancied a cheeky tipple on your return!
Highly recommend staying in this beautiful relaxing house!

We had a lovely one night stay at Melford House over the bank holiday weekend. Will gave us some great local recommendations - things to see, places to eat & drink - and was very accommodating, especially given the last minute booking. Breakfast was delicious, particularly the scrambled egg on toast. Would stay again.

I usually stay in large hotels, but thought I'd try a B&B for a change and was very pleased that I did. An immaculately clean room and bathroom, excellent breakfast and a friendly and accommodating host - what more could you ask for?

It's changed my perception of B&B for business use (oh, did I mention the free - fast - WiFi !) and I've already booked a return visit. Give it a try...

Room Tip: I suspect they're all good

Stayed on business. Great location and much more personal service than hotels. Easy to find from Train Station, although not clearly marked as a Guest House or B&B so you need to look out for the Melford House sign. Clean room and nice and quiet. Would definitely stay again.

Thank you for your kind review. I have a dilemma with the sign in that I don't think the customary names for accommodation (b&b guesthouse hotel etc) really reflect the nature of the offering at Melford House. But I take the point, perhaps anonymity is not the best marketing strategy!
